By announcing her first achievement, the actress from Mad Max Fury Road and Big Little Lies clarified thatshe didn’t want to take the lead role, in order to concentrate on the staging. If she had found the billionaire’s interpreter in the person of Channing tatum, she has only just revealed who will play Frida: it is Naomi ackie, seen in particular in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Master of None, who will be the heroine of her first film. The press release also specifies that it is the MGM which will produce Pussy Island, whose provocative title has several meanings, according to its creator: “This title means a lot of things. I started writing this story in 2017. As a woman in general, and also in this industry, I have seen some pretty wild behavior from the opposite sex. That title was so kind of a joke at first, alluding to this place where guys could go, bring girls back, party and fuck. But it also hints at our time, where we claim that we don’t. want to live like this more, in terms of politics and sexuality. People evolve, things change, but there can remain a bad taste related to the harmful actions of some in the past. The title refers to this, and at the same time , it’s a playground, like the film which will be a playground in many aspects. I like the fact that this title evokes all of these at the same time, that there is a real meaning behind it. “
